    Not on wmp because it does not support flv videos.
    But you can watch online stream on windows media player.
    you can use vlc media player or media player classic for youtube videos.

    I am not sure what do you mean by youtube videos.
    online youtube videos or
    videos downloaded from youtube.

    but for both purpose you can use vlc and media player classic.
    just open and enter the URL of the video.

    Either install the additional codecs recommended above or use VLC.
    VLS plays pretty much anything including videos downloaded from Youtube.

    Hello, yes it is possible to watch flash videos on Windows Media Player.  The only thing you have to do is install extra codecs.  I think it works only if you have the video on your computer.  There are several additional codec packs you could install.  This is one example:

    There are several packages you could install.  The basic package does not include Media Player Classic.  From the standard package an up, it includes Media Player Classic which includes way more settings than Windows Media Player.
